Cardus picks up pace after struggling in first corners of Mugello race
The Mugello GP comes to an end for the NGM Mobile Forward Racing Riders. It was a good start for the Spanish rider Ricky Cardús who after a very difficult qualifying session yesterday has managed to take the chequered flag in 19th place.
The NGM Mobile Forward Riders will stay one more day at the Italian track for an official day of testing.
Ricky Cardus “I started the race very concentrated, I really wanted to have a good start after all the difficulties that we have encountered during the weekend, but it was complicated to be fast after all the problems we have had. It is a track that I really enjoy, but I was not able to do good lap times. I made a good start, but was held back battling in the first corners going on the gravel and making it difficult to get a good pace. Knowing that the race was over for me I focused on gaining confidence with the bike.
We have a testing program for tomorrow in which we will be trying several modifications that we hope will help us at the Montmelo GP. I have to regain the concentration in order to be fast with this bike.”
